I tell you honestly: don't you go and throw your heart away
I know it's so hard to do
You've got to let go when you want to hold on
I know how much you miss him; celebrate what you had
Don't cry about the things left unsaid
It'll do no good
You look for mercy and a meaning somewhere
But you know that the hurting won't go
Till you walk through the fire

It's gonna take an act of faith to stand up and face the day
It's gonna take an act of faith; nobody can make you stay
It's gonna take an act of faith
Maybe love will find it's way back into your life
Here's my heart; my love is in it
Here's my heart; my love is in it

Stand up; don't you fall
You just take good care of where you are
You're thinking life's through with you
That's not what he'd want or what you should do
I know you loved him, baby; celebrate who he was
I know you know you've got to go on and live your life
Go down to the river of the spirit that runs through you
And lay yourself down in the healing waters

It's gonna take an act of faith to stand up and face the day
It's gonna take an act of faith; nobody can make you stay
It's gonna take an act of faith
Maybe love will find it's way back into your life

Love is a healer
There is no purpose served in holding on
Love is a healer
There is no understanding why
Love is a healer
There is no sin in you that brought this to your door
My love - it just is

(In memory of Bobby Brookes)
